What I Learned This Weekend

  • A base level of nerves excitement is unavoidable.
  • Acknowledging that I can be competent and incompetent at the same time [Show Today], keeps the butterflies flying in formation (Wofford).
  • I can maintain peak intensity for one class in a weekend.
  • I need to get my sorry ass to the gym.
  • A one-day show can be achieved on enthusiasm. Multi-day showing requires food, sleep, and good shoes.
  • There is no point to looking ahead for a hot-shot maneuver if I forget about what the horse and I are doing at the moment.
  • Don’t be boring.

  1. Ah, an homage to Sherlock. Or ACD hisself (since I think the boring thing is canon). So nine other riders at the second show … I have wondered, since you started this shakytail venture, why the classes were always so small! That sounds like a healthier entry (though, of course, it does lower your odds of doing the victory pass thingy).

    • I’d be all for big classes if the competitors were adults. It’s hard for the old farts to beat the kids – and then I feel badly when I do.
